Burnt Tree adds first hybrid cars to rental fleet

The additions to the fleet take the form of both hatchback and Tourer models and will initially be located at the company’s depots in Heathrow and Purfleet in East London for use by corporate accounts in the London area.

Commenting on the decision to incorporate hybrid vehicles into its fleet, Chris Sharpe, director at Burnt Tree said: ‘By using clever hybrid technology, the Toyota Auris hybrids are really economical, practical vehicles and they are the first ever hybrids to be available through the Burnt Tree branch network. We believe that they will be extremely popular additions to our rental and contract hire fleets, especially in the sensitive urban conurbations such as London.’

He added: ‘The standout feature of these vehicles are the running costs of over 70mpg and the added attraction for company car users of its low CO2 emissions of just 89g/km.’
